Certain rules change and alter between Round 1 and the elimination rounds, so it's important to note the differences. Also, please carefully read all of the following before asking any potential questions:
Round 3 ends at 11:59pm MOCpages time on 20/6/17.
The theme for this round’s categories is places and regions from Middle-Earth. We didn't choose specific locations, because we wanted to leave you as much artistic freedom as possible. How do you imagine life in your given region? Is it peaceful, mysterious or even dangerous? Maybe you want to show us the people who live in your place/region? Or maybe you have an interesting landscape or strange creatures for the less known places of Tolkien's world in your mind. Some of the chosen regions may not be well known by most of you, so don't hesitate to ask the judges your questions (this shouldn't replace your own research though, since the internet is full of written information and pictures that may insire you for your category) Can't wait to see your interpretations of this round. Good luck!
Required for all Round 3 entries:
-Title your entry: MELO Round 3: [your name] vs. [your opponent’s name]
-State your bracket (Barad Dur or Orthanc) FIRST THING in the intro box. As there are two sets of judges, this immediately informs them if you’re in their bracket or not. It’s a courtesy!
-Provide a WORKING link to your opponent’s homepage or entry (depending on which of you posts first), placed preferably near the top of your entry’s page. You can also include a link to the MELO homepage if you’d like (appreciated, but not required).
-State you’re category, preferably near the top of your page.

Alright, I'm very sorry for the confusion, but this thread will be locked. The results are still the same, I just want to change the title of the thread. So continue discussing the results in the Round 3 thread. Thank you!
